Re: Glow in the dark?

I havent used any "glow tape" but I do use luminescant lures...not so much luck with the chartreuse but the anything pink does pretty well.

Big fan of pink...any pink...'cept shirts.

Ok, ok...I'll stop.

Glow tape....hmmm, unfamiliar to me, but this thread just gave me some ideas!

Thanks for the contribution JS!

Re: Glow in the dark?

Any kind of tape is going to have to be laid on real tight and smooth (no wrinkles) or it will jack up the action of the lure. I've never seen the stuff but can't imagine it would stick to well to a swimbait. A long slash type piece might be good on a hard bait.

Re: Glow in the dark?

in some situations the glow aspect will others it will hinder. Many times it won't have a big effect either way especially if you don't recharge it with a lightsource before every cast. On ice jigs is when it is perhaps at it's most effective in my experience. Often times it is more about profile/sound/silhouette than anything. At night I would believe that glow would work better on things that are presented right against the bottom and possibly detract from the silhouette of the lure if presented higher in the water column. As for bells........try the new ones from Rod&Bobby that have both bells and a small electric light in them all in one self-contained unit. I used them very successfully while fishing cats last summer and never had one fly off even with big hooksets and extended fights with cats over 20lbs. They run about five bucks each but the light lasts a long time and there aren't any more sensitive bells out there that I have found.

i think you are right KD, it catches more fishermen than fish

Re: Glow in the dark?

Agree with WS-in our clear water, I don't see any reason for it. Looks unnatural and would work against you IMO.

Re: Glow in the dark?

I've had good luck with glow stuff, if that means anything to ya. Mostly just jigs and plastics, never on a swimbait or jerk. I cant really see it hurting anything.
